Occoquan Elementary School would like for you to join us once again for a clean up of the playgrounds and the Sharon Lake Memorial Picnic Area behind the school.
This idea started in 2015 when I took a walk around the field behind the school with my daughter and thought "Wow, This place needs a CITO." Within the week I contacted the Principal and got permission to have one on the grounds.
Our group has made a positive impact here at this school, and I was sad I had to cancel this in 2020 because of COVID19 "gathering" restrictions, but now we have a green light to do this again..
CITO stands for Cache In Trash Out. It’s the geocacher’s approach to keeping our game board (i.e. the entire planet) in great shape. Geocachers gather together to pick up trash, remove invasive species, repair trails and more! Also all geocachers who participate in a CITO between September 1st to November 31st will earn a pretty sweet new souvenir!

Bags for the clean up have been provided by NoVAGO, and I will have some gloves at the starting coords. You could get dirty, so dress appropriately, and wear good footwear. The fields could be soggy. The woodline has thorns and some poison ivy. Your garden gloves will come in handy as well. Our planned cleanup area is marked in red on the picture below. Disabled cachers are invited as well. The school has a paved lot that could be policed easily by wheelchair.
